Great seeing sardines, would have been better if the beach was a little cleaner! However, it was an amazing sight the amount of wild life and corals available at the beach which is only a 3min walk if you staying in town!

Beautiful dive with lots of coral, frog fish, small cave, tonnes of fish all around. Must stay at Magic Island Dive Resort as its the closest to Pescador.

Did a two rank dive with Magic Island Resort. What a fantastic dive site. Corals were colorful and healthy. Marine life was abundant. The dive guides were able to find the smallest critters. Great dive.

This small island is located a short boat ride away. The reef/walls are very healthy and the visibility was better than any other site (probably because of the relative lack of rainwater runoff).

Given the distance and the bus service, I would suggest you to stay at Moalboal and have an early snorkeling. It takes about 3 hours from Cebu city and you'll get tired once arrive (think about the return trip!). However... More

Hi, it does sound a lot but you are doing 3 tours, we asked around Moalboal for prices and bartered hard for our trips, they will come down with prices, try it. Good luck.
